The idea of scuba diving is already terrifying for a lot of us - after seeing this video, we might never try it. 

An intense video shows the moment a diver from Mayak Gamov, Russia, was grabbed by a giant octopus in the Sea. The animal latched onto his legs for a few moments, but he was able to free himself with a few kicks. The diver was swimming in the Sea of Japan when the octopus wrapped its tentacles around his legs and tried to drag him deeper into the sea.
